Juventus confirmed on Friday the signing of Italian manager Massimiliano Allegri, who returns to the club two years after his departure in place of Andrea Pirlo, who leaves the bench after a single season in office in which he has won two titles, the Italian Cup and Super Cup.” Massimiliano Allegri is the coach of Juventus once again. Allegri returns to a place he knows very well, a club he loves and whose love is reciprocal, where today begins a new path, with new goals”, Announced Juventus in a statement. During his first leg at the club (2014-19), the manager won five League titles, four Cup titles and two Italian Super Cup titles, in addition to taking Juventus to two Champions League finals lost to Barcelona (2015) and Real Madrid (2017).” Now we begin to build our future together with Allegri, with his great professionalism, his brilliant ideas and his ability to change cards both on and off the playing fields. With his trademark smile. With his way of understanding football and life simply, with the desire to play and the commitment to enjoy every moment at Juventus, something that the club guarantees”, highlighted the Turin club. In addition, the entity wanted to thank Pirlo for “the courage, dedication and passion he showed every day.” “We want to thank, from the heart, the ‘Master’, the coach, Andrea. And good luck for a future that’s sure to be wonderful,” he fired. Pirlo took over the team last summer in place of Maurizio Sarri and, despite the two titles mentioned above, failed to make his team shine in the Champions League, where he was eliminated by Porto in the eighth round, nor in Serie A, where he finished in fourth place.
